E cigarette case

By Kamila Szewczuk 

Finding out how frequent and dangerous are e-cigarettes explosions we decided to design a device that will help to minimalise potential burns and injuries caused by these incidents. As a final product, we came up with an e-cigarette pocket with a temperature sensor and a buzzer. Temperature higher than 70 degrees triggers the sensor which activates the buzzer and therefore warns us about incoming explosion.

The project used a temperature sensor that was attached to the Arduino lily pad by conductive thread. The Arduino was programmed to set off a buzzer at a certain frequency. The program was imported onto the lily pad board using a USB serial connector. The conductive thread caused problems as it wasn’t creating clear connections between the different components. The wire needs to be carefully insulated to work properly.
